Laser Hair Removal

Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Perfect for anyone fatigued by the tedious process of shaving or waxing, laser hair removal has rapidly become one of the most popular methods of eliminating unwanted hair and painful ingrowns. Starting as early as your first treatment, you’ll notice a substantial decrease in growth, often leaving behind softer, smoother and healthier skin. After six sessions you can expect between 85 and 95% reduction overall. Whether for comfort or convenience, laser hair removal is the quick, easy and obvious solution for anyone looking to simplify their grooming routine.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece and specifically targets the pigment in your hair. This causes it to heat up and damage the surrounding follicle enough to slow and then eliminate growth.  Treatments are typically spread four to six weeks apart and require at least six sessions for your best result. 

Is Laser Hair Removal safe?

When performed by qualified professionals, laser hair removal is a safe and simple, FDA approved procedure that has been used for years to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical issues.  At Flash Lab, our technicians are certified laser specialists as well as licensed estheticians who provide consults before every session to ensure your skin is properly prepped and safe for treatment. 

What does Laser Hair Removal feel like?

Laser Hair Removal has been known to be uncomfortable in the past however thanks to Candela's unique and patented cooling system, which provides a soothing burst of cryogen milliseconds before each pulse, this treatment is more manageable than ever. What you'll experience may feel like a warm rubber band snap however, if you're used to waxing or plucking, laser hair removal will be a breeze. 

How should I prepare for my Laser Hair Removal treatment?

For safe and effective Laser Hair Removal you'll need to avoid signifiant sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to your treatment. We ask that you please shave the area to be treated the day before your appointment to ensure optimal results. At the start of every session your technician will go over any medications you may be on but prescriptions such as antibiotics and Accutane as well as Retinol products for your face can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser and will have to be scheduled around. 

What should I expect after my Laser Hair Removal treatment?

There is little to no downtime associated with Laser Hair Removal. Some people experience redness or light swelling around the area that was treated. These side effects typically last only a few minutes leaving you free to go about your day!

What technology does Flash Lab use to perform Laser Hair Removal? 

Flash Lab uses the FDA approved Candela GentleMax, one of the most advanced hair removal systems the esthetics industry has to offer. By integrating two of the laser world’s leading devices, the GentleLASE and GentleYAG, Candela has created a singular machine that is not only safe and effective for all skin types but also easily operable, a unique quality which is rarely addressed when weighing the benefits of one machine over another.

What makes Candela better than other laser systems?

Aside from how powerful a particular laser may be, one of the most important components to achieving optimal results is your technician’s ability to manipulate it. Simply put, when our job is easier you get a better treatment and the GentleMax is a technician’s dream. Not only is it lightweight and fast pulsing, but Candela offers a patented Cryogen cooling technology that you won’t find anywhere else. Most machines used for hair reduction come equipped with cooling air hoses that technicians have to operate while simultaneously pulsing the laser. The GentleMax however, has built its cooling system directly into the hand piece, providing a protective burst of cryogen to safely soothe your skin a split second before the zap happens. This leaves your technician free to concentrate on what’s most important: targeting every last hair follicle. With the Candela GentleMax you will truly have the most comfortable, thorough and effective laser treatment available today. Since no two clients are alike, we offer complimentary consultations prior to the purchase of any packages, to ensure that your treatments are tailored specifically for you and your skin type.
